Anyone else besides me who doesn't think this song is a piece of crap?

It's nothing to write home about, but they did worse.

Friend of mine loves the tune. I think it's ok. For me it depends on the rest of the set.

I have been going through a lot of 1990-1994 stuff today, and I came across PM a few times.

Sorry, not a big fan. I'll try it a few more times - they often grow on you.

There's no such thing as a piece of crap from the Dead...just lots of different pieces that make up a wonderful puzzle of life. Picasso Moon is solid for it's later part in GD history. Don't forget Auburn Hills, MI in '93. Sweet PM opener followed by an appropriate Althea. This one gets my blood flowing a little, makes me wanna do a lil jig!

Someone after my own heart. EVERY Grateful Dead show was a gift. Period.

Actually Bryan -I kinda like it (now, if they would have run some of the photos from that Green Grass clip during that song it would be over the top) but seriously I thought Picasso was actually a little fresher than 'Bucket' which stayed in the rotation way to long.
I think the problem with Picasso was it did not flow too well into other songs and it was almost impossible to make something lead into it, thus it was usually in the opener slot, Bucket was more versatile.

p.s.-wasn't it you a couple of months ago who was giving us all a hard time about getting on the Dead ,i think we were talking about worst covers and you were like 'I like everything the Dead ever did'?

Yeah, that was me. And that's where I'm coming from here. I've noticed that this song has taken it on the chin occasionally, and that's why I'm asking who, besides me, does NOT think it's crap. I've always thought it was musically innovative and unpredictable. Lyrically it's not the deepest thing they ever recorded, but again, it's not easy to see what's coming around the corner with the words, either. You're right, though, that it was probably difficult, if not impossible to segue into or out of it. The only time I ever saw them play it, it did not have the same punch that it has on Built To Last. But I would still love to see Ratdog do it.

It occurred to me that I might have been a bit clumsy in how I worded that question.

Picasso Moon like Victim or the Crime are two Bobby songs that have stood and grown hair. We got a great Picasso rendition in Peekskill NY on March 6. Great show, pure Weird Bob. I'll take a modern day Picasso Moon anytime. Bob likes the song and it comes through when he performs it.

Delilah, et. al.,
It's been a while since I posted that thread, but I enjoyed reading your reply. I disagree with a lot of old-schoolers here on the forum in that I don't believe Bobby Weir stopped composing good stuff 27 years ago or more. He is a little overdue for a new album, but anyone who's unable to get any enjoyment out of Ratdog's Evening Moods CD is plainly bent on rejecting out of hand what he's been doing since Garcia died.
As far as Picasso Moon is concerned, it made me jump from the first time I listened to Built To Last. I only saw them play it once, at a Buckeye Lake show in Ohio, 1992. I did listen to a red-hot rendition of it from one of the Archive shows a few days ago. Date and venue escape me at this point, but it was probably one of the breakout shows (shows featuring the first performance after years-long layoffs of various songs) posted by stratocaster. I've been having trouble linking to the forum from this computer today, but maybe this link will work for you. Read the setlists and see if you can locate the song. It smokes bigger than a drive-in movie, know what I'm sayin'?

I had the same issues this morning, must be big brother.

Never witness'd a Picasso Moon or even listen'd to one, except BTL that impressed my sences. Sort of like most of Picasso's painting.....Maybe Bobby should include "All jack'd up" in his set list.

I always thought it was a lot like Hell in a Bucket, which I thought really rocked at times and St of Circumstance which is a WHOLE lot better, as well.
